Assumption Parish-Black Rock Community-Buffalo New York
By 1882 a Polish colony had formed in the Black Rock community in Buffalo New York. During the early years of the parish 1888-1891, 800 baptisms and 136 weddings were performed. The parish remains active today and through the years renovations have been done to the church.
I have personal memories of this church from my young years for two reasons. Our school would play basketball in their school gym and my Grandma loved to play Bingo at the Polish Cadet building next door.
But since it is Thursday and I am hanging out with Norm2.0 and checking out doors this is for all of you:
The front steps were restored in 1998.
Extensive renovations were done in 2010-2011 on both the interior and exterior.
The four leaf symbol is a Christian sign that resembles the Cross and reflects the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
The church is located on Amherst Street, near Grant in the Black Rock Community
Buffalo’s third Polish Parish still serving the community for more than 125 years.
The Old World Architecture never really gets old
